Event Report

The number of electric vehicles representing so many different makes surpassed all expectations at our Earth Day event at the Nature Conservancy parking lot.  The Arcimoto was was something new to us and Ron O'Dell was happy talk about his experience. Our show was enhanced by a Cybertruck, Fisker, and  IoniQ visitors who decided to stay with us. The Cybertruck was an eye catcher especially.
This was a new venue for us and drew interested people from an area without EV representation. I think this is an opportunity for growth.
Our group actually had 2 Earth Day Events this year. Look for additional reporrt to follow at Earth Day in Bishp Ca.
On April 20th after our 1st DEEM plans, we were invited to show in BIshop CA Earth Day. It was well attended by 5 of our EV's and a larger visitor number around 100. We had 3 different EV makes including a Bolt this year.  Eastern Sierra Transit also displayed an all electric bus.  Please see link for photos.

Event Description


A group of our Eastern Sierra Electric Vehicles will drive a scenic route while drawing notice to our EV's.   We will begin by leaving Bridgeport, Ca at 10 am. We would end at historic Genoa where residents and tourists will be introduced to our clean, quiet and economical electric vehicles. Once there, we would set up a static display at the The Nature Conservancy’s River Fork Ranch Preserve. We will provide information and engage with visitors by answering questions about driving electric. We would end by charging our vehicles in Minden/Gardnerville free community chargers and at the Tesla supercharger at Lake Topaz.
